The adorable boy is Big-Un. Though he is definitely getting older, and he is no longer quite the Big-Un he used to be. He is still a reasonably sized boy with a lovely colored coat of fur. From the very beginning he has never been the largest of ferrets but his name endures. Although as much as he loves the soup that he gets you would think he would be bigger than he is.
He is a calm quiet boy most of the time and he gets along pretty well with the other ferrets. He unfortunately lost one of his original cagemates earlier this year, but he and his sister Bandit are holding up well for older ferrets with the health issues that seem to surround ferrets at their age.
He was actually originally part of a four-some but the 4th ferret had apparently died just days before we arrived, alone and in his cage, without ever seeing a vet. Apparently his illness led them to decide that ferrets were too much trouble so they decided to get rid of them. While quite upset to find that we were only a few days too late to try and help the 4th ferret we were very glad that they found us so we that we could make sure Big-Un and his sisters had the best life possible.
Big-Un's favorite sleep space is under a dresser......no bedding, no hammocks, just under his dresser. He eats the ferret food mix well and eats an occasional treat but will not touch N-bones at all.
